The annual process allocates funding to projects identified by citizens and often includes efforts with relatively significant budgets of $100,000 or more. Work to make John/Thomas intersections safer from Capitol Hill Station to Miller Park is one recent example of a Neighborhood Street Fund-boosted project.
The Community Prioritization phase runs through Friday, March 1st and will set the stage for the “highest-prioritized projects” to proceed to the voting phase later this spring.
In addition to sorting the proposals by those most actively prioritized, you can also sort the listings by score, and values including “unity” (community scores most closely aligned), and “difference” (scores where the community is most split). Probably not shocking, but some of the most interesting ideas can be found at the top of the “difference” sort.
